Recipe by HeidiSue

My dear friend Lisa made this for us one night and I loved it. I also love how easy it is to make. I haven't made it with the pecans, but I am sure it would be good.

Made this for dinner last night and both my husband and I really liked it. I used 16 oz. of Four Cheese Alfredo sauce, didn't have any sherry or wine, so I used 2 T of brandy, used jalepeno stuffed olives for a little extra kick and added some black pepper. Looking forward to having the left-overs for dinner again tonight!
